true love waits::{a ring}

I am still someone's wife.  reconciliation. restoring. healing.  or not..whatever happens.  I wait.

I've learned the hard way that there are things as a married person that are not ours to give away.  NO matter what the other person has done. Today,  and I pray for the rest of my life -  that no matter what happens that I remember who's my stuff really is and that I only give it in health.  I remember that there are eyes watching me.  I teach my children about life by how I live mine.  I have many sad stories.

But this..this is the promise that I now have and I hold tight to it each and everyday: God honors obedience and I want to please Him.

so while I wait..I wear this ring to remind me that I'm someone's girl...and I'm Someone's girl...I am learning that I am worth waiting for and worth being treated with respect.  I am also worth learning how to treat others with respect and to wait for them.

 

I haven't worn my wedding ring in several years.  We bought this purity ring for Grace's 12th birthday this year.  I am thinking about buying me one. My thinking of it is neutral ring showing that I am committed to purity in my marriage...separated or not.   Committed to purity in my relationship with God.  In my younger days I have reacted out of my fears and insecurities making bad choices.   Not today.  

 

A ring is also a visual reminder not only for me...but others that I am taken.  My heart is taken.  What I have belongs to me and my husband. For me...separation to me is not a license to play.  For me.  Until that permanently changes I am committing my mind and heart to only focus on falling more in love with Jesus,changing myself, focusing on my dream by making a plan and living it and children.

true love waits: even if our relationship is never truly reconciled..I have a Husband who will never leave or forsake me and that makes me want to jump up and down with joy!

I would love to know what you think:  is marriage and purity..married or not..valued anymore today?
